Okay. Today's main topic for this entry requires me to summon all my energy and passion for writing as well as the extensive vocabulary that has been drilled into me after 4 years of English lessons (secondary school level). But first, to sidetrack a little, please accept my sincere apologies for this delay in updating. VIPs from Thailand have invaded my home and as the only daughter (cum maid) available, there were certain duties to carry out. Minor things (such as serving the drinks and listening to the adults gossip), but nevertheless, time-consuming. And I just completed that super long survey some NTU person tagged at QR's blog. I think they must be very "eng" to be able to create such a long survey. DRAG... With that, let us finally proceed to the main argument of this blog entry; Why are there immature dictators who like to act like they are of the utmost importance to society when in fact, society would do much better without, ahem, PEOPLE like them. Apologies for having to use such a shallow word, but since this is open to public eyes, I have to be merciful. I'd like to clarify that any comments regarding this argument is purely yours truly's very personal opinions. Please do not bother to counter-argue. You'd just be wasting your very precious time. SO. Let's start. Okay, the story goes that I recently read on one of my MSN contact's nickname, asking somebody to cease appearing in a certain place. Since I very well knew where that "certain place" happens to be, I can therefore be very certain in telling that "IT" is a public place. Which means that any Tom, Dick or Harry is free to make their presence there. Although it has not been confirmed who exactly that "somebody" is, but readers, be assured that it at least refers to a close acquaintance of mine, if not your truly. Okay. Simple translation. It either refers to me or my friends. Understand? Now, lets carry on. Upon reading that statement, I was, naturally, incensed that anyone could be so egoistic enough to demand another individual to stop patronising a public place. I mean, since its supposed to be a public place, doesn't it mean that anyone and everyone can go there? So who are you to try and dictate who can or cannot be present at that place? I understand that Mr. Ego feels very uncomfortable at seeing that particular individual, but wouldn't it just solve the problem if Mr. Ego just stopped appearing at that place? To make my point clearer, let me give an example. If I were to hate the guts of Mr. A so much that I can't bear the sight of him, I'd go out of my way to make sure that our paths don't cross; instead of going up to him and saying "Hey, please don't come here anymore. You're not welcome." For goodness sake, any intellectual, or even anyone with a fraction of a human brain understands that one cannot simply stop another from visiting places that are deemed available to the public. Besides, just because you, Mr. Ego feels that Person A isn't welcome there does not mean that others feel the exact same way. Please stop trying to enforce your opinions on others. Get a LIFE, since you obviously don't have one, judging from the way you keep trying to interfere with others' lives. And now I have come to a closure to my argument. Please note that no names have been mentioned at all. To those of you who automatically know who I'm actually referring to. Brilliant! And since there have been no mention of any named individual, lets see if anyone is stupid enough to come up with any strong rebuttals. I mean, are you trying to admit you're Mr. Ego? Please don't let me laugh until I fall off my chair. Before I sign off, let me again remind all readers that any comments regarding this argument is purely yours truly's very personal opinions. Please DO NOT bother to counter-argue. You'd just be wasting your very precious time. Thank you and have a nice day.
